Upcoming Event

Join the State Museum and Nashville Public Television for a Special Film Screening of “First Peoples” on Sunday, June 21

The State Museum will present an advanced film screening of “First Peoples,” a new series coming to Nashville Public Television this summer. The screening is scheduled for Sunday, June 21, at 2 p.m. and is free to the general public.

The new series, “First Peoples,” debuting on NPT and PBS this month, is a global detective story, featuring new fossil finds and the latest genetic research. It’s a story that revolves around a shocking revelation: In prehistoric times, humans met and mated with other types of humans. This mixing of genes helped early man survive and ultimately thrive. Scientists are beginning to realize that ours is not a pedigree species, but a patchwork.

Each of the five episodes — Americas, Africa, Asia, Australia and Europe — visits a different continent to explore how our ancestors beat the odds and spread from continent to continent
and what was the secret to their success.

After the film screening the museum staff will be offering guided tours of the pre-historic collection in the museum’s permanent exhibitions. There is no charge for either the film screening or the tours and no reservations are required. However seating is limited and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The series “First Peoples” will air on NPT at 8 p.m. on Wednesdays, June 24 and continue through July 8. For more information about the series can be found wnpt.org.

Information on upcoming programs at the Tennessee State Museum will be listed on the museum website calendar at tnmuseum.org/calendar.
